Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) has appointed Hawker
Pacific Asia in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to its worldwide network of
authorized service centers. The company says the move will
provide support to the growing fleet of Beechcraft King
Air turboprops in the region. Hawker Pacific Asia, located in the
Subang Airpark at the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, is the first
such facility to be authorized by HBC in Malaysia.
"The number of King Air turboprops in this part of the world
continues to grow as its reputation for versatility and durability
expands," said Christi Tannahill, HBC vice president, Global
Customer Support, in a news release Wednesday. "Hawker Pacific has
also continued to extend its operations and reach by adding
facilities and personnel at this location over the past two years
to support business aircraft operations in the Malay Peninsula. We
are pleased to be working with them in this key locale."
Hawker Pacific opened its Subang Airpark operation in Kuala Lumpur
in 2008 and has supplemented its original facilities with
additional maintenance space over the past two years. The site is
one of 14 locations in Asia and the Middle East operated by Hawker
Pacific, a leading aviation sales and support organization that
traces its heritage back to its founding in Australia in 1927.
